...a pressure release valve from my day-to-day.

What is it to you?

#2 3 years ago

A place to learn.

#3 3 years ago

A place to learn & yet another place for me to insert sarcastic comments

#4 3 years ago

An opportunity to make my little corner of pinball better.

LTG : )

#5 3 years ago

A place to learn, and drool over everyone's collections & game rooms.

#6 3 years ago

My favourite website.

#7 3 years ago

I don't do the Facebook, so this is my place to laugh at people that take themselves WAY too seriously.

#8 3 years ago

A place that makes me feel like my addiction ain't that bad.

In all seriousness. A source. For priceless information, camaraderie, and games that I want.

#9 3 years ago

For some: A place to learn and a resource to buy, sell, get tech advice.

For others: I place to police pricing/profits, get offended and complain and nit pick over things that should be so low on the totem poll in their life it isn't worth bickering about.

#10 3 years ago

Just another hobby to do in between Cigar Club Meetings.....

#11 3 years ago

A place that feeds the addiction. Spent 3 years with a TMNT before I found this website, and was fairly content with it. Pinside opened my eyes to the world of pinball in which I have purchased 3 pins within the last year and moved on from TMNT.

#12 3 years ago

Gay, not that there's anything wrong with that!

#13 3 years ago

It's a place to learn and give out information that I have that can help others. Also a place to meet people in the hobby locally.

#14 3 years ago

A place to give and spread joy.

#15 3 years ago

Where they keep all of the people who are unable to fit in with the rest of society.

...very nearly a thing of the past. The negativity towards nearly every game is getting overwhelming. Sometimes I'd just rather stay off Pinside and remember why I love pinball without people shitting on every awesome thing that comes along.

AGREED! But I do come here as a resource to fix my own pin problems. Nobody around me to help, so gotta do it myself. The negativity is something you have to get used to. You'd think a site like this (for people who supposedly love pinball) wouldn't attract so many people that hate pinball.

#19 3 years ago

I laugh at the people that get so bent out of shape when someone else doesn't agree with them. Life is too short. Enjoy the hobby! Opinions will vary, get over it and move on.

#20 3 years ago

A great place for tech threads and entertainment.

All the tech people are the best. What a treasure trove of great info.
And if you don't get into arguments over new games this place is great.
People who left obviously just could not overlook the trolls.

#21 3 years ago

A place where I spend WAY too much time.
Love it.

#22 3 years ago

Is a great place to enjoy our passion. To help others. To be helped. A escape from the real world. An enjoyable place.

#23 3 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

A place to give and spread joy.

And you spread it pretty thick.

#24 3 years ago

A place where I sometimes act like more of an ass than I should...

#25 3 years ago

a time filler.

#27 3 years ago

A place to learn and share, whether it be advice, experiences, parts, strategies. Pinside is cool!

#30 3 years ago

A place to discuss fun engineered products. And exchange ideas with arcade fans.

#31 3 years ago

Where I go when pornhub is down.

j/k - it's obviously a place to meet like minded individuals to discuss and share our hobby

#32 3 years ago

...a reality check.

#33 3 years ago

o dey, beezleboob, old pin guy

Agreed. It's become a cesspool of junior high bickering and douchebagery.

#35 3 years ago

... the bridge under which the pinball trolls live.

I agree with the increased negativity comments. I've only been here 2 years and it feels much different today than when I joined - and it's hard not to get sucked in.

#36 3 years ago

.. a place where you can bad-mouth every pinball manufacturer except Spooky. That'll get the mods on you REAL fast.

#38 3 years ago

^^^^^ If you say that her name is Joy, I am gonna report you to the moderators.

#39 3 years ago

where I learned a lot, but agreed that the emotional dysfunction displayed by many is getting old to me.

#41 3 years ago

Is a place to come and mill some time. A place to teach, and to learn about all that is pinball related. A place where you get to sort of meet a bunch of generally nice people.

#43 3 years ago

A place where you have to drain a topic thread in silence.

Nah. Pinside is no different then life in general. I ignore the bullshit and the assholes. And don’t be a dick and people might like you.

#45 3 years ago

Pinside is pretty much the only forum I use anymore. Its my source of entertainment, education and amusement. It allows me to catch up on the latest and greatest and keep in touch with distant friends. It also helps identify those I would prefer to stay away from - like beelzeboob. I kiid!

Maybe the percentage of assholes is the same but most people wouldn't talk to another person face to face like they do around here.

#47 3 years ago

Pinside is my only online social network.

#48 3 years ago

Second Home

A place where you can come home from work after kissing ass all day and be a tough guy...
